LAS PIÑAS CITY (PIA) — Good news! The Department of Public Works and Highways – National Capital Region (DPWH-NCR) opened the new C5 Extension Quirino Flyover to ease the flow of traffic.

Located in Las Piñas City, the Quirino flyover is a 680 linear-meter long bridge, with a 390 linear meters bridge approach.

In his message, Public Works and Highways Secretary Manuel Bonoan said that the newly-opened bridge aims to ease the traffic in the area to better serve motorists and commuters.

Senators Cynthia Villar and Mark Villar graced the inauguration, together with DPWH Assistant Secretary Nerie D. Bueno, Regional Director Loreta M. Malaluan, District Engineer Isabelo C. Baleros, and Assistant Regional Director Joel F. Limpengco.

It is expected that the traffic flow in the area will be eased due to the opening of the two-lane bridge, which will serve as an alternative route.

Likewise, the flyover will decongest the roads to Zapote, Sucat, Paranaque, Coastal Road, and Cavite.

DPWH-NCR Regional Director Malaluan said that the C5 Quirino Flyover is just one of the projects being done by the department that will improve the road and bridge network in the National Capital Region, to make it safer and more accessible to commuters. (DPWH-NCR/PIA-NCR)
